Toilet Training Requirements
Pre-kindergarten students must be toilet-trained before the first day of school. Seven Hills will accommodate “accidents,” however, when the teachers deem accidents too frequent, parents will be asked to keep their child at home until he/she is toilet-trained. If a child is not toilet-trained by the start of school, we are happy to work with you to establish a delayed start date.
This is not applicable to students entering the pre-kindergarten for two-year-old program.
